suffered. she is joined bay former obama administration at visor on iran who discusses iran's program. the foundation for the defense of democracies held this event. >> good morning. it's a very interesting panel so i want to get quickly into questions. very quickly set the stage. i don't need to tell anyone who is in this room about the depth of the problem of human rights abuses in iran. i would just read very briefly from the report that the u.p. report filed for the u.n.gen assembly when it was highlight, quote, pattern of systemic violations of human rights. iran has refused access to the united nations for several years, and the ug general assembly submitted a report in which he said he was, quote, deeply troubled by increased numbers of executions. a pew addition, arbitrary arrests and detention, unfair trials, torture, and ill treatment, and crackdown on human rights activityist, lawyers, journalist, and opposition activists, and to draw an example from the week's news theres actually what i gas what qualifies in iran for a slight bit of goodness. a well-known human rights law
about the influence of iran in the entire region, also in the gulf region. so today we are here to discuss the expanding influence in the south caucasus, but we're also talking about, i intend to talk about some of the problems in the persian gulf region because that's a vital interest to us. the straits of hormuz, persian gulf, or the swiss canal are blocked in any way they could have devastating impact on the united states because we still get a large part of our energy from the region. i traveled to azerbaijan an armenian in early september. and i also stopped in georgia and met with the president. when i talked to these leaders, iran was one of the things that came up at the very beginning, because they'll feel the influence and the aggressive attitude underneath cover so to speak of iran. in particular, i think azerbaijan feels a great deal of concern, and when i talked to the president, members of parliament and others, it was readily apparent to me that they thought that there ought to be closer ties between azerbaijan and the united states, and georgia, and hopefully arm
with the issue of iran. because if i could not do it will be the first question. but before iran, let's speak about iraq. in the early 80s, decided to attack a nuclear reactor in iraq. it wasn't popular here in the u.s., but we did it and we were condemned by the u.s., the state department. we were condemned by the u.n. years later, people appreciated the grave issue he took was for the benefit of the american people. because then you invade iraq come you are able to go into iraq without the risk of the iraqi nuclear. thus go back to 1973. i'm sure some jewish people and the audience and for us, the jewish people yom kippur is the holiest day of the year, where we go to the shore, we pray 1973 turn yom kippur. even though i thought i knew everything before i wrote the book. when i was doing the research i learned myself a lot. i found out 1973 congress by surprise, were almost an appointment would've lost the war. in the middle of the war, we can go to the sea. it's not the war in vietnam or afghanistan. it means rout of the game to make it to a crucial point in the first day of the war that
and tensions in iran coming up in a few minutes. we will bring you a portion of the morning portion of the discussion at the foundation for defense of democracy. this segment and this panel discussion focused on the egyptian elections. >> good morning everyone. thank you, bob, for that introduction and thank you all of you for coming out early this morning for what i think will be a lively debate. we are going to be asking the question if democracy is to triumph in the middle east, victories at the ballot box are inavoidable and essential. this is the motion we will be debating in the intelligence-squared format per requests from our panelists who have done this once already -- they have had a practice round. they have not had a chance of doing this, but i suspect, had probably had several scotches and talked about ways to defeat their foes. we know that this is a time of revolution in the middle east. it started with a fruit sell seller in tunisia and toppled a 230-year dictator that spread to egypt and the egyptian revolution was concern to the united states. egypt has long held i
the military serv before the failed iran hostage rescue mission convinced others to follow. now 85, brown continues to serve on the defense policy board and is a trustee of the center for strategic and international studies. with joyce winds low, brown recently co-authored "star- spangled security" applying lessons safeguarding america. i asked him whether jointness was too far as some critics argue. >> not every operation requires jointness. i'm sure there are some that can be best handled by a single service. and by an element rather far down in the table of organization of that service. nevertheless, i believe that the idea of jointness, joint operations, is correct because it brings together talents that each service has that the others do not have. it is probably true that too much is now happening at the unified and specified commands. they have indeed greatly increased staffs and they even have elements in washington that begin to act like lobbies. when a new problem arises, a joint task force is put together. and that makes sense. and the elements may come from more than one of th
? islamic republic in iran, the new government in egypt. all of them organize political life on the basis of what they believe is virtue. it is a totalitarian society because it dictates your scope of action in life. it dictates fundamental moral choices about who to marry and whatever, all kinds of stuff. that's another way in which we need to understand and that also leads to some deeper appreciation of how you go about tackling this. very briefly, we should distinguish the term liberalism from democracy. democracy is simply a process. you had an election. he took a bow for their own enslavement and often do. people forget this. they think world for freedom. i'm sorry, but there's a constituency that is per submission. this is a site goes fact of life that is not fully appreciated. in the west. so how do you go about it? to distinguish between democracy and liberalism and you try as best you can to promote the spirit of liberalism, even if it is procedurally at the expense of the brotherhood. >> your response to that? >> i'm listening to this discussion which i enjoy thoroughly, but my
the newest move to stop hundreds of millions of dollars of gold coming into iran every month. we'll tell you how. "piles of money" in that trashcan, i'm going to get it but no gold coming up. ♪ . >> there's a stalemate. let's not kid ourselves. melissa: i feel gooood about that. that wa house speaker john boehner today putting to rest the idea that a fiscal cliff deal is on its way. some angry lawmakers are now saying the last three weeks have been a complete waste and that president obama's new detailed proposal is a total non-starter. hedge fund manager jonathan hoenig agrees. he joins us to tell us why he thinks the president's plan rests entirely punishing the minority, that is the rich. thanks for having you back on the show. >> hello, melissa. melissa: this is depressing topic you will make it light and happy for us somehow. >> there is nothing happy about wealth destruction that is exactly what president is doing. you raised a very important point. why is it the president's plan to fix the economic calamity specifically reinvolves hurting minority, as you point out the so-called ric
; of putting israel's peace with egypt on a stronger foundation; of making sure that iran can never acquire a nuclear weapon. and just yesterday, as you know, the united nations general assembly voted to grant the palestinian authority non-member observer state status, a step that will not bring us any closer to peace. when it comes to a region full of uncertainty, upheaval, revolution, this much is constant and clear -- america and israel are in it together. this is a friendship that comes naturally to us. americans honor israel as a homeland dreamed of for generations and finally achieved by pioneering men and women in my lifetime. we share bedrock beliefs in freedom, equality, democracy, and the right to live without fear. what threatens israel threatens america, and what strengthens israel strengthens us. our two governments maintain not just the formal u.s.israel strategic dialogue, but a daily dialogue, sometimes an hourly dialogue, at every level. in a season of tight budgets, u.s. assistance to israel is at a record high. and over the past few weeks, i have heard from israelis the g
. but gradually safety-conscious people are making inroads. takafumi terui, nhk world, beijing. >>> iran will conduct naval drills for six days in the strait of hormuz in the persian gulf. the exercise is apparently meant to showcase its military strength in the world's vital oil and gas shipping route. iran's naval commander told reporters the drills will begin on friday. they'll involve areas across the strait of hormuz and northern parts of the indian ocean. the commander said the drill will test the navy's missile systems, combat ships and submarines, and iranian-made spy drones. he said the exercises are intended to counter threats from enemy countries. iran carried out similar drills last december and january. officials have said that iran might block the strait. this prompted the u.s. to send a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier to the area. analysts say iran will conduct the drills again to keep western countries and the gulf nations in check. >>> the leaders of the six arab gulf states have been discussing their defense strategies. they agreed to bring their military forces under
rights abuses in iran. i would just read briefly from the report that the u.n. special wrote and file to the u.n. general assembly in september of 2011 when there was a pattern of systemic violations of human rights. iran has refused access to the united nations special representative on human rights. in september, 2011, the un secretary-general submitted a report to the general assembly in which he said he was "deeply troubled by reports of increased numbers of executions, amputations, arbitrary arrests and detentions, unfair trials, torture, and ill treatment and bemoaned the crackdown on human rights activists, lawyers, journalists, and opposite -- and opposition activists." one example from the week's news -- there was what qualifies in iran as a some good news -- a well-known human rights lawyer ended her 49-day hunger strike on december four. she has been imprisoned since 2010 and the regime had imposed a travel ban on her husband and 12-year-old daughter. she was on a hunger strike for 49 days and has actually stopped of thunderstrike amid an indication that the regime will lif
. from one side, it is north korea and zimbabwe and cuba and iran, and we are from the other side. >> you are on the other side from north korea, cuba and iran for sure. let's ask some questions. >> from the beginning, the first question from martin. >> i am not going to talk about palestinians. i always enjoy talking about is really politics. >> no, it is not fair. now you can ask a who barack. he is free and can speak openly -- ehud barak. he is free and can speak openly without restrictions. >> well, let me try. i think americans would be interested in your analysis of israeli happening in is reall politics. it appears that there is a rightward shift. is that true, and can you explain what happened to the electorate, why you joined with m as opposed to staying separate? >> the first idea was presidential elections. in the united states, you have only two parties. in the last knesset, now in the knesset, we have 14 parties. in the previous knesset, we had 23 parties in the parliament, and we only have 120 members. 14 parties. you know how difficult it is to establish coalition. for thes
as well. cnn "newsroom" with carol costello begins right now. >>> bragging rights, iran claims they captured a u.s. drone and issues a warning "we shall trample on the united states." >>> drunk and partying the night before he shocked the nfl and fans. >>> director kathryn bigelow talks about the controversy over her bin laden death movie. >> i think it's nice because now the film can speak for itself and i certainly have a feeling that a lot of those debates will transition to something slightly less controversial. >> the full interview straight ahead. >>> so you don't read runway ? >> no. >> before today you never heard of me. >> no. >> you have no style or sense of fashion. >> i think that depends on what your -- >> no, no, that wasn't a question. >> the devil's diplomacy. vogue editor anna wintour, u.s. ambassador? maybe. "newsroom" starts now. good morning. thank you so much for joining me. i'm carol costello. this morning iran is bragging. it claims it capture d an american drone. the u.s. is denying it. iran has made that drone a star on state tv. according to iran's sta
has been and is going to continue to be iran. i think the administration frankly has lagged far behind the house. we have been far ahead in pressuring iran. a lot of that is because of reuel. we have been united in the house in our effort to do that. i think that congressional pressure frankly is building, building quickly in light of recent events. i am looking forward of course to the conference report that we are going to see now from the national authorization act where we are going to have another chance to tighten the noose. and i want to say that the amendment that would shut down most business with key sectors in the iranian economy, with energy and shipbuilding and shipping and ports, this amendment that would shut down businesses that are involved in sectors which fund the proliferation activities of iran, of that regime, is crucial. in addition, the amendment is going to prohibit business with all designated persons connected to the iranian government. it bans trade and commodities used, it is designed to stop iran from busting sanctions by receiving payment in gold o
:00 on the west coast and it looks like a drone. iran says it's a drone. it may well be a drone, but the united states navy says it's not one of our drones. iran's revolutionary guard says it has captured one of our prized pieces of intelligence, something called a scan eagle. iran says it was brought down by anti-aircraft squads in iranian air space. there's no visible damage in the pictures that aired today on iranian tv, and, again, the u.s. navy, which patrols the persian gulf constantly, says all ever its drones are currently accounted for. it also says its drones stay in international air space. joining me now with his insights and expertise is jim walsh. jim, first and foremost, look, it may very well be someone else's drone. i'll get to that in a moment. but when we say we only patrol in international air space, do we really only patrol in international air space? >> well, the first thing to know about that ashleigh, is international air space is highly contested. different countries draw the maps in different ways. and so you can be in a spot in the air where one country claims it's in
standoff in iran and syria have taken a dangerous turn today. we already knew iran had been shipping weapons to the iranian regime. now fox news has learned that syria is repaying iran with advanced missile defense systems. i meant to say that iran is shipping weapons to syria. at any rate. intelligence sources tell us that syria has flown planes loaded with fa 17 surface to air missile systems to iran for the iranians the missiles are a major score. a serious upgrade to what iran has had up until now. experts say the sa 17s would make it much harder for the west or israel to launch an air attack on iran's nuclear sites. leland vittert with the news in our middle east bureau this morning. leland? >> shep, this definitely changes the strategic map of the middle east. not only for iran vs. israel but also iran vs. united states. these systems are enough any plans they have to attack iran's nuclear facilities. >> designed by russia to protect its city's military bases and icbm by attack by the united states. the sa 17 is among the most sophisticated air defense systems in the world. rus
on iran and libya. he has expressed the view that press containment might be an option. that does not seem to be in line with the president's policy or recent votes in the senate. what is your view on that? >> those things are all true. it seems there is some kind of an endemic hostility towards israel. he served in the senate for a number of years and has done many good things. those are warning bells. it is potentially troublesome. >> i was going to ask a question about washington. in the case of susan rice and chuck hagel, it seems like we're going through exercise of pre- betting. is this a new and healthy trend in washington? >> i do not think it is really new. i think today with the media, everybody knows about everything the minute it happens. perhaps it is new because of that. we are a democratic society, an open society. people have a right and an obligation to voice their opinions and vent. if you're appointing someone to a high post, you need to look behind the credentials. chuck hagel is qualified to be secretary of defense. you want to have these other things available as well
closer to a grand bargain. chris: all he has to worry about is iran after this is over with. >> you got it. he's got the biggest, most dangerous foreign policy issues coming at him right away. chris: keep the iranians from going weaponized. all this fiscal cliff talk reminds us of cliffhangers in the movies but which cliff scene will washington's dare devil act look like? could we see both sides leap to safety at the last minute like paul newman and robert redford in butch cassidy or could it be more like rebels without a cause drag racing toward a danger they don't appreciate until it's too late. [screaming] there are other movies where going over the cliff is a planned thing like it was for bill murray's desperate character trying to end his recurring nightmare in "groundhog day." >> we musn't keep it waiting. >> he might be ok. chris: the worst movie analogy we could imagine ends badly for all concerned. let's hope and pray that thelma and louise are not boehner and obama. my own favorite clip is mount rushmore, "north by northwest," the hitchcock great with cary grant pursued by spi
they fear -- in iran, where they have a fraudulent democratic system, the process of actually going out to vote crated the earthquake in 1997 and created even greater earthquakes in 2009. there is not a single cleric in iran, with one exception, who will argue against democracy now. i do not have enough time here to explain, to name all the individuals who are the diehard revolutionaries who have fallen away because of the practices of the theocracy. we do not know what the evolution will be under a democratic system as opposed to a dictatorship. under a dictatorship we have seen a complete falling away of the intellectual class towards a democratic ethic. if there had been a free election in 2009, we would not have to worry about iran today. >> there was not a free election. >> even not having a free election, you had enormous evolution occur among people who were at one time diehard revolutionaries. i suggested evolution will be greater under a democratic system when you have as much voting as we have had in iran. >> we have to leave it there. please give a round of applause to our pa
gorbachev took and finally, this is a critical point, you want to talk about iran and whether there is a case study here, are am not sure the u.s. system even with ronald reagan, would have been willing to engage in this kind of diplomacy without the impact of the allies because they had to take a missile, we had to be uniquely sensitive to their politics and their concerns in a way that we rarely are in national security. >> you immediately said no to my question. >> i think it took both of them. wreck has mentioned the allies. that is important. i would also mentioned george shultz, the foreign ministers. neither of them could have done it without that sort of support but the fact is that the united states needed someone with the confidence of the right wing to make a deal with the soviet union if any was going to be made that was going to be politically defensible. not that there was no democrat. they couldn't have thought this was a dumb idea. most of them probably did and i will save for the democrats they supported us every way as we were going toward the soviet union. >
demonstrators? >> to take the other big issue that we are thinking about this week, iran is a big theme in your book. you talk in one chapter about that if it. the prime minister of israel sees iran very much in the munich and obligee's. having a nuclear weapons capability that could threaten the assistance and so it trolls conclusions from that. you have a broad historical and geographical analysis so i'm curious what you would say about the decisions that we are going to be looking at over the next few weeks, months, 12 to 18 months this is going to be resolved one way or another. >> it would run as a much more serious than saudi arabia or any in the arab world. there's been governments in persian speaking on the plateau going back. it's on the caspian and of the gulf of the greater of middle east. it has central asia on one hand. this regime may have trouble yet transform itself and it may be overthrown but there will always be iran. saudi arabia is more tenuous. it's the creation of a family. it's not synonymous with of the arabian peninsula. there are -- they've always had trouble keeping

administers an adviser on iran to discusses the iranian nuclear program. and the foundation for the defense of democracies, this is one hour. >> good morning, it is a very interesting panel so i want to get quickly into questions. i want to quickly set the stage -- i don't need to tell anyone in this room about the death of the problem of human rights abuses in iran. i would just read briefly from the report that the u.n. special wrote and file to the u.n. general assembly in september of 2011 when there was a pattern of systemic violations of human rights. iran has refused access to the united nations special reperteur on human rights. in september, 2011, the un secretary-general submitted a report to the general assembly in which he said he was "deeply troubled by reports of increased numbers of executions, amputations, arbitrary arrests and detentions, unfair trials, torture, and ill treatment and bemoaned the crackdown on human rights activists, lawyers, journalists, and opposite -- and opposition activists." one example from the week's news -- there was what qualifies in i ran as a som
the first phase of the uprising. sunni saudi arabia believes that shia iran is making trouble in bahrain, which means it is a proxy battle field in their cold war. the u.s. faces a fleet here. all of that puts the bahrainis deeply inside the middle east pressure cooker. >> there are other forces and other people doing things that have deepened what has happened. there are national forces. >> you are saying iran? >> it can be iran. it can be others. and dissemination of sectarianism and hatred. we are doing our best to stop this. >> and bahrain is a barometer for the gulf. if the crisis cannot be solved by the country's politicians, bahrain will export trouble to the region, sharpening sectarianism and, a dangerous competition between the saudis and iran. >> killed a lot that is unresolved. the british government is to pay more than $3 million to in libyan dissident who claims the intelligence agency mi was involved in forcibly sending him back to libya, where he was tortured by the gadhafi's regime. britain said the payment is not when a mission of liability. the security situation in li
more thing we want to go to. from iran to syria to libya to egypt to israeli, palestinian standoff over gaza, the obama administration's wishes have seldom been grapted. >> we and the world have joined in condemning the brutality of the assad regime. >> no one wants to determine what happened that night in benghazi more than the president and i do. >> and this administration has either been guilty of colossal incompetence or engaged in a coverup. >> a red line should be drawn right here. before iran completes the second stage of nuclear enrichment necessary to make a bottom. >> -- bomb. >> i will not keep american es in harm's way a single day required than is absolutely necessary for our national security. gwen: there's a lot of unfinished business. >> you can call the year of 2012 the year of unsolved problems. par of that didn't include, congress orks north korea. even china is bumping up against its neighbors and it's striking how little of this was discussed. but the economy always gets in the way of foreign policy. about the only piece to foreign policy that made its way to the ca
market. >> it was a routine iran air flight that almost turned into catastrophe. the landing gear on that his boeing failed last year. a small part had been, more and dislodge, forcing the captain to land his airplane on the back wheels. the captain said it should not have happened and blames the international sanctions against iran. >> in the beginning, since all airplanes were new, there were not serious problems. but the cost of maintenance has been multiplied and our airline expenses have become very high. >> that is because iran has to find parts of the black market. >> airlines confined parts on many companies, the sanctions are difficult. yes, the engineering sector has been under pressure 30 years, but it has forced us to be creative and calls that domestic engineering advancements. >> but they say there is only so much engineers can do to keep the airplanes flying. according to government figures, more than 21 million people flew on iranian airlines last year. the most common airplane they operate is made in the netherlands. it is -- has largely replaced the russian airpl
's jump right into it. iran, when will they get in a clear weapon? >> it is not inevitable. i think whether they will not will depend on what we do, and a is hard to gauge when they may decide to try to get a bomb. certainly the current strategy is to prevent that. a lot of administration is making clear they want to prevent and they have made clear they want to prevent the bomb. getting a certain amount of nuclear weapons capabilities. i think iran perceives it is risky to try to get the nuclear weapon at this time. in essence, they are deterred from trying. we would argue that they would have had a nuclear weapon by now if it had not been for all the actions of the international community over the last ten years. so if they are determined now will they be in the future? and one of the -- and a technical organization, one of the wars we have is that if it is easy for them to get a bomb they will be more likely to make the decision to do it. there have been other cases with a knowledge weapon states where once they had the capability, the technical capability, the political decision
another exciting issue. from financial regulation, iran getting a nuclear bomb, civil war in syria, fraud on wall street, destruction of medicare and medicaid. there are real issues here. having been a governor, i know that trade-offs are tough. things everyday exploding around the world that leave no shortage for exciting conversations. i want our viewer to understand why things have happened. at the end of the show, you know what has happened, why its happened and more importantly, what's going to happen tomorrow. >> cenk: we've the latest in the grand bargain negotiations. democrats gave they are first offer, republicans theirs. their both largely nonsense. we know they're going to meet somewhere in the middle but it has to play out. we're told nbc is a liberal network. interesting. andrea mitchell asked questions that are completely loaded in favor of cutting social security and medicare, which is not remotely liberal. she almost tries to browbeat. watch. >> are you willing to work with the president to go against aarp to bring house departments along for cuts with the most popular pr
, the nuclear threat from iran, globalization, because we're not alone. the united states and the west are in the same battles ourselves. it's the internal threats, the internal cohesion that's at risk, ironically, of success. and that's the thesis of the book, and i'm optimistic that we can do it, but that there are very real challenges. >> ambassador eisenstadt, you were involved in the carter administration. if you could, just recap what you did for the president. >> well, i was the president's chief domestic adviser, but it was my recommendation that created the u.s. holocaust memorial museum, the excision that led to that. i -- the commission that led to that. but during the clinton administration, i was ambassador to the european union, and i did as undersecretary all the holocaust negotiations. i negotiated $8 billion of compensation from the swiss, the germans, the austrians for slave labor, forced labor, looted art insurance, property restitution and the like. and here i'm really trying to look at this from the perspective of someone who's been a senior government official but
into turkey. iran getting drawn into it more heavily than they are now. in this chaos this would allow the theory would go allow for assad to survive everybody longer in some corner of the country as the whole region starts to explode. that's one of the major fears of u.s. policymakers. >> rose: it it also feeds into this larger question in terms of sunni/shi'a within the arab world and you have -- not arab states like iran, a shiite country, and you've got qatar and saudi arabia and you've got turkey and other countries looking like there is a clear sunni presence coming together. >> that's right. my colleague had a very good analysis last week reporting on this and the big concern of course in recent years has been a shi'a crescent with iran and others. now it's looking more like you have a resurgent sunni movement here which, of course, the majority of syrians are sunni and so you have a natural affiliation with the people in syria and some of the opposition forces. there are two countries like saudi arabia and qatar which have been two of the main countries financing and helping to
, the other news of the day. here's hari sreenivasan. >> sreenivasan: iran claimed today it has captured a u.s. surveillance drone. the "scan-eagle" is used to collect photographic and video images. iranian state television broadcast video of two military commanders examining the aircraft. they said it was seized "in the past few days," but they did not specify where or how. in response, the u.s. navy said none of its unmanned aerial vehicles-- u.a.v.'s-- are missing. and in washington, white house spokesman jay carney raised doubts about tehran's statements. we have no evidence that the iranian claims you cite are true. i'd refer you to the pentagon's comments this morning for details about this particular type of u.a.v., but again we have no evidence that the iranian claims are true. >> sreenivasan: a year ago, iran did manage to down a c.i.a. drone that apparently crossed the border from afghanistan. and last month, the u.s. military said another drone came under fire by iran over the persian gulf. it was undamaged. in afghanistan, a bomb blast has killed two nato troops in the country's
? >> reporter: the key for syria is russia and iran and there are indications now that russia may be open to some kind of deal and it is not for any altruistic region but they're trying to preserve what little influence they have inside syria. that is a key russian ally and they would be like to be on the forefront of brokering a deal rather than syria totally fall in the hands of jihadists and somebody risch shuns have no influence on. one of the reasons they may start to talk about the deal is high level defection. this was the general in charge of the military police. when he defected over to turkey it is very nasty thing to say about the regime and president assad because he is now joining the rebels. this is may be why the russians are starting to think about talking to people. there are report that is the syrian deputy foreign minister now in moscow for talks possibly trying to negotiate some kind of settlement, some kind of transition. how that would look where it would be anrd early transition rather than this civil war pushing out what is left with the regime whether that would b
